Jewish National Fund is excited to announce that Dar Nadler joined the New England office as its new KKL-JNF Israel Emissary, one of only four people to hold this position nationally. In this role, Nadler will serve as a liaison between the New England community and Israel, strengthening the connection between American Jews and her homeland, as well as joining the efforts of the JNF New England team to increase awareness of JNF’s tremendous work for the state and people of Israel.

Originally from Kibbutz Barkai, Nadler attributes her Zionistic passion and idealism to her upbringing. She adheres to the philosophy of Current Zionism, which follows the notion that while the main goal of Zionism was fulfilled when the modern state of Israel was created, the mission of shaping and building the state of Israel is still ongoing.

Nadler was drawn to this position because she felt it was a natural fit for her as a next step in her career. Prior to joining Jewish National Fund, she was the CEO of a prominent Israeli NGO called Blue White Future, served as a senior advisor to the deputy minister of defense, Gen. (ret.) Matan Vilnai, and ran several successful public campaigns for prominent Israeli public figures, raising both awareness and funds for civic agendas.

“I look forward to showing the New England community the prominence and success that JNF has achieved in Israel,” said Nadler. “By investing our resources, minds and souls in the Negev and the Galilee, as well as in areas such as special needs, education, community building, modern history heritage sites and so much more, JNF is shaping the nature of the state of Israel toward morality and ethics we believe in.”

“I am thrilled to have Dar as part of our JNF family,” said Sara Hefez, executive director of New England and the Capital District. “She joins a legacy of passionate high-level professionals that have served as our KKL-JNF Israel Emissaries. We will certainly be accomplishing great things together in the future.”

Dar welcomes the opportunity to meet with members of the community both at JNF events and in person. She can also be reached at 617-423-0999 ext. 816 or
